Cool vintage NetCafe footage
Google's segment starts at 18:20. the in-page video stream works great. Audio is only 1 channel (left) though. Cool to see the early vintage footage of silicon valley.

Sound quality is poor
I think it's great to be able to watch these episodes, but even with my sound turned up full-blast, the sound is not very loud.

Great Quality Control
So whatever happened to that Typesetting startup?
Honestly, would it be that tough to write a spider that runs through the site and checks that the links and filenames match?

Something funny is going on around here
I tried to play the Real Stream of this file but the film "How to set type" is what actually played in my player. I think the link is screwy. Also the QT file wouldn't play at all.
